Is irregular heartbeat considered a heart condition on health surveys?

Depends. All human beings have some irregular heart beat sometimes. If it's something you've occasionally noticed, i wouldn't include it on a health survey, but if your doctor has given you a specific diagnosis, e.g. Atrial fibrillation or supraventricular tachycardia (among others), then i would include it.

Hello. . Hello. I have included possible symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. I can't diagnose your symptoms. However, you described irregular heartbeat, dizziness and chest pain. Although the increased pain with taking a breath and with movement of extremity are suggestive of musculo skeletal, you have symptoms which can't be explained by that. I recommend that you be evaluated immediately to ensure that you are not experiencing an arythmia. When it comes to possible cardiac issues, it is best to take the most cautious approach.
